Weight loss is losing body mass, which can result from a reduction in body fluid, muscle mass, or fat. The most common weight loss method is through diet and exercise. However, there are other methods, such as weight loss surgery. Bariatric surgery is a procedure that helps people lose weight depending on their BMI. There are several types of bariatric surgery, and the type that is best for each person will depend on their individual situation. For example, some people may have health conditions that make one type of surgery riskier than another.
Bariatric surgery is not a quick fix. It is important to understand that it is a lifelong commitment. People who have the surgery must make lifelong changes to their diet and lifestyle. Eating habits must be completely changed to maintain weight loss. This includes eating smaller meals more often, avoiding high-calorie foods, and eating slowly. There must also be increased physical activity, either by exercising mindfully or consciously trying to keep moving.
To be successful, it is important to have support from family and friends. We also have a support group available for people who have had weight loss surgery. These groups can provide moral support as well as offer tips and advice from other people who are going through the same thing. Surgery should be considered a last resort after all other attempts at weight loss have failed.
